Coffee is a tough on for me. I love the taste of coffee with some heavy cream. But if I drink it too late in the day or evening it definitely gets me a little jittery and makes it more difficult to sleep. I try to alternate between coffee and tea. Another problem with coffee is that it really speeds up my digestion. For some reason tea does not have many negative affects on me and that's why I cycle it in. One thing I notice is that if I try to abstain from coffee for more than a few days I get terrible cravings for it and also get some minor headaches. So I definitely know I am addicted to it. When I do drink coffee I only drink one cup per day. I guess I am just more sensitive than others but the fact that I get coffee cravings and withdrawals makes me reconsider if its a good thing to continue to consume. But it is pretty darn yummy!

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
